About Colin Potsig 

Colin was born and raised in the North West of England however circumstances brought him to the North East, to the wild and wondrous Northumberland.  Colin lives in the Allen valleys and enjoys the beautiful countryside, quiet lifestyle and welcoming people. 

He was diagnosed in his late 30’s with Aspergers syndrome, and has found that his diagnosis has helped his creative output. 

Originally a landscape photographer, Colin later found out his interest piqued by the human face and portraiture became his main interest.  This led to two exhibitions of the various and varied locals of the Allen valleys and to his two ‘You, Me and Autism’ projects which have been funded by the arts council and successfully exhibited around the country.
